Statues and fountains are scattered throughout this centrally located, massive garden. It's a great place to picnic with a bottle of wine, a book, and just relax.

We walked around the gardens in November and even with most of the trees bare it’s still beautiful. Definitely worth a visit. Have a wonder, grab a coffee nearby and then explore the art district of Saint-Germain. Great 1/2 day in Paris.

I have strolled through this park several times. A great place to walk, sit, or people watch. Nice paths, hidden statues, and plants and trees.

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
